The left’s war on wisdom from the past

Why is literature that gives us insight into reality spurned by the left and pulled from school curricula?  Is it because such literature threatens their agendas and campaigns to change people and the world in impossible ways?

The reluctance of the left to deal with people and the world as they really are – not as wished or imagined – is probably why “liberalism” has earned such a bad name in our time.  For today’s redeemers and reformers of society who habitually ignore reality, the following two samples of such instructive literature must be too embarrassing, subversive, and painful to deal with.

“We must abolish property,” said one.

“We must abolish marriage,” said the second.

“We must abolish God,” said the third.

“I wish we could abolish work,” said the fourth.

“Do not let us get beyond practical politics,” said the first.  “The first thing is to reduce men to a common level.”
